Deer Farm and Family Log Cabin

"Mt Glenhowden Park"

Breathtaking natural beauty surrounds this unique home built by the present owner, on 302 acres with slate floors and a huge work shop and shed area. There are 30 acres of deer fencing enclosing 7 hand fed animals. Sitting adjacent to permanent Emu Creek and surrounded by several larger station properties enables a healthy population of wild deer access to the area.

Raked timber ceilings with exposed beams, air-conditioning, slow combustion fireplace, fully screened, and full length veranda make this inviting living.  

There are full amenities in the workshop/office area and also a self contained granny flat separated by a carport giving eviro-tourism potential.  

An abundance of native wildlife including platypus, koalas, wallabies and more than 230 species of birds have been spotted.  

For the creative soul, there is so much here to inspire – whether a keen photographer, landscape painter/sketcher, writer, or musician, the surrounds and serenity foster and nurture your creativity. 

Established, easy care gardens are designed to attract birds & butterflies and feature gravilleas, aloes, bromeliads and a host of large, well established fruit and garden trees.

In addition to the home, a 5-bay shed including office and breezeway powered is with satellite NBN access (as is the house). With a kitchenette and bathroom and adjoining 6m x 9m machinery shed, the scene is set for creative pursuits and ease of storage.

A host of tanks store rainwater harvested from the large roof span. Permanent water is available from the Emu Creek frontage (one of Queensland’s longest creeks) and a licence to irrigate 5 hectares is also included. Two additional storage dams on the property ensure water supply is not an issue. Additional infrastructure includes the perimeter being completely fenced for cattle and additionally 30 acres of seven-foot high deer fencing with multiple gates.

The owners have lived here virtually self-sufficiently, with produce from the land, including vegetables, herbs, fresh eggs, and venison. However, it is only 25 kilometres to the IGA at the local rural townships of Kilcoy or Toogoolawah, and 10 kilometres to local convenience stores for supplies. Mail is delivered to the property three times a week via the Toogoolawah Post Office.

Located with an accessible radius of Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba, Kingaroy, Ipswich and Dalby, this is the ultimate rural lifestyle with absolute privacy and peace, without complete isolation.

Owners have brought their children up here and had an idyllic lifestyle, however, their circumstances have changed requiring them to downsize and relocate. ‘Mt Glenhowden Park’ is being offered to the market for the first time since the owners purchased this parcel of land in 1978, it could be many decades before it is available again.
